Who would ever have thought that a radish sandwich with butter would be so yummy! Don't knock it until you try it - it is sure to be a family favorite! And, if you use gluten free bread, it is a gluten free recipe!
Have you ever heard of a Gourmet Radish Sandwich with Butter? I can hear the sighs now but, you have to try it to believe just how good it is!
I had never heard of a radish sandwich until my oldest son and daughter-in-law told me about them and how good they were.
I don't know why but, it just did not appeal to me until, I tried them! Now, a radish sandwich with butter is my new all-time favorite sandwich. Especially since radishes are growing so well in the greenhouse!
For those of you who don't know, we were given a green house frame. It is the type of greenhouse in Walmart parking lots except, here in west Texas, it got blown away in the winds!
A friend bought it "as is" and eventually gave it to us. We used ICF blocks to make the foundation and now it is a very respectable greenhouse that will not blow away.
I planted several winter vegetables and so far, the radishes are doing the best.
Broccoli, cabbage, kale, lettuce, beets and carrots are also growing and doing fairly well. The biggest battle had been against the mice - who knew that they also enjoy fresh veggies!
If your family is like mine, they will be skeptical. But, the greatest skeptic will be won over with one taste.
Our radishes are not very hot and spicy so, I also serve sliced onions for those who want a bit more heat in their sandwich.
How to Make a Radish Sandwich
3 easy steps - You can't get much easier than this!
- Prepare veggies - Slice radishes, onions and tear radish tops or lettuce
- Spread butter (or condiment of choice) on a couple of slices of homemade whole wheat or sourdough or gluten free bread.
- Place radishes and other veggies on bread, put the slices together to make a sandwich and enjoy!
Condiments to Use for a Radish Sandwich
- Butter - Homemade Butter is delish!
- Homemade mayonnaise
- Homemade ranch dressing
- Horseradish sauce
You will note in the recipe below that I specify using the radish tops and if you don't have them, lettuce can also be used.
If you taste the radish tops alone, you may notice that they prickle your tongue but, once they are on your sandwich, they are delicious!
Not only do they add a beautiful deep green color to your radish sandwich, you are also getting a different nutritional profile in the radish tops than you would with lettuce. Talk about a gourmet treat!

I would never have thought to have radishes on a sandwich before, I'm going to try this it sounds nice and light!
I love Radish Sandwiches, I grew up eating both Radish and Cucumber sandwiches. I described what they were to my friends, and coworkers, and they all acted as though I had 2 heads. I've never thought about using radish tops in them though! I live in an apartment and don't have growing space/depth for radishes, so I mostly buy bagged radishes when I have a craving.
Trumble, that is so funny because I get the same response about both types of sandwiches! My family loves both but I have to admit, until I married John (almost 34 yr ago), I had never heard of cucumber sandwiches either. His mother served them and since our garden grows them well, we all enjoy them!
